Հորովել - Horovel covered by Վահէ Թիլպեան - Vahe Tilbian

The masterpiece written by Komitas, with a different and unique interpretation here introducing the "mesenko", a traditional Ethiopian instrument, in the mix resulting in some mix of cultures, a true "mixology" of my Ethiopian Armenian-ness.
Thanks Kenny Allen, Endris Hassen, (we regret the spelling error in the video editing) and of course the great Komitas!
